MUNSOO KWON 문수권
Creative Director Mun Soon Kwon
After cutting his teeth under the tutelage of such names as Robert Geller, Helmut Lang, Thom Browne, and culminating with 5 seasons as a designer at Andrew Buckler, MUNSOO KWON has launched his very first collection for Fall/Winter 2012, in New York.
MUNSOO KWON attempts to steer clear of the traditional saturated menswear market, and build his designs based on neatly tailored modern silhouettes that are practical; yet maintain his own distinctive design. His aesthetic is faithful to proportions and carefully designed for an impeccable fit, while still using his unique detailing. Rather than overtly branding his pieces, MUNSOO KWON uses his signature split-open details on the back and special pockets on shirts to create a coherent brand representation.
In November 2013, MUNSOO KWON successfully presented the 13FW collection which is his third one during the Seoul Fashion Week. His work has been introduced and featured in leading press including Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, GQ, and Esquire, as well as in major daily newspapers in Korea.
